    I live in London and am looking to purchase a couple of pairs of navy pinstripe trousers in a slim fit.

    Does anyone know of any shops I could check out which would sell them? I do not want to spend a great deal of money on them and do not require a full suit due to the dress code at work being quite casual.

    Thanks for your help.

    Pinstripes in general should not be worn on odd jackets or odd trousers, only suits. They're a suiting fabric and should be treated as such. If you must for some reason buy pinstripe trousers, how much is "a great deal of money" to you? Tough to make recommendations without knowing this.

    +1. This is why you are having difficulty finding them.

    I agree with archibaldleach. Pinstripe odd pants are bad enough, but navy makes it worse. We are doing you a favor by saving you money.

    If you are looking for odd trousers, mid-gray or brown are nice.

    Banana Republic currently has a tailored slim fit non-iron pinstripe pants. I have bought the "navy" color, and it looks, fits, and feels nice, but it's more of a dark gray-navy.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    That would explain why I was having such difficulty in finding them. Not many people wear suits at work so will stick to plain navy for now.
